Our History

The Bichon Frise is of Mediterranean ancestry. His oldest ancestor is the Barbet, or Water Spaniel, from which the name Barbichon cam, later shortened to Bichon. Also descended from the Barbet are the Caniche, or Poodle, and the Maltese. They have certain similarities because of their common ancestry, but each long ago became a separate breed.

The Barbichon group of dogs evolved into four breeds: The Bichon Bolognese, the Bichon Havanese, the Bichon Maltese and the Bichon Tenerife. From the Bichon Tenerife came today’s Bichon Frise. These lively and affectionate dogs found their way from the Mediterranean area to the Canary Islands, specifically to the Island of Tenerife. They probably traveled as the companions of Spanish sailors, who may have used them as items of barter.

By the 1300’s, Italy had become a center of trade and commerce and, with the advent of the Renaissance, began a period of exploration. Now it was the Italian sailors who returned the Bichon to the continent. In Italy, the Bichon Tenerife attracted the attention of nobility and the new middle class of merchants. The dog was often groomed in the lion style, which was then a popular trim, but he should not be confused with the Little Lion Dog (Lowchen). Late in the 1400’s, as the French became enamoured of Italian culture, France invaded Italy, and the Italian influence spread north. Italian artists and scholars went north to serve in the French courts and, no doubt, carried along favorite pets.

OVER VIEW

“Bichon frise” literally translates to “curly lap dog,” which is certainly an accurate description of these little white dogs! Made popular by their use as circus dogs, Bichons love attention and excel in learning and performing tricks. Bichons are lively, cheerful and unconditionally devoted to their owners. They also tend to be more allergy friendly, because they are non-shedding and have hair instead of fur. Bichons are playful and affectionate, are great with children and usually weigh 10-15 lbs. as adults.

The Bichon is one of four types of what was formerly called the Barbichon group, with the other three members being the Maltese, Havanese, and the Bolognese. Believed to have developed on Tenerife in the Canary Islands, this breed is said to be a descendant of the Bichon Tenerife, a sailor’s favorite traveling dog! Since the Bichon was known for his jolly personality and compact size, he was a top choice for voyagers and eventually became a favorite amongst nobility.

BICHON FRISE PERSONALITY

The Bichon’s personality also makes him an ideal dog for those who enjoy exploring the world and are looking for a traveling companion.Considering that his ancestors were famous for their traveling exploits, this is a great dog for nomads who are constantly on the move! The easygoing nature of the Bichon makes him wonderfully adaptable to all kinds of living, whether it is larger home types, smaller apartments, or even RVs that are traveling across the country!

BICHON FRISE TEMPERMENT 

Described by the American Kennel Club as being a “canine comedian,” this little dog is spunky, silly, highly energetic, and very playful! Though they make good watchdogs since they enjoy using their voices, they are all bark and no bite. They have never met a stranger and their bark is pretty much always a “hello,” and never “go away.” Remember, the Bichon was bred to be a companion dog, and he won’t tolerate being left alone for long periods of time. He can become very attached to his people and can suffer separation anxiety. Still, because he was bred primarily as a companion dog, the Bichon does great with families and is excellent with children as he is so curious and spirited. However, he is a smaller dog, so he may not be the right fit for very young toddlers or rougher kids.

Do Bichon Frises make good family pets

This loving little creature gets along well with all sorts, including adults, children, and even other animals! However, although the Bichon is a very social dog, without proper training he can have a tendency to become hyper and overly excited. He can also become territorial, but this behavior can be easily discouraged with proper training and early socialization.
